Michael Liddle: Still missing

Team news for Tuesday's League Two clash between Accrington Stanley and Morecambe at the Crown Ground.

Accrington boss James Beattie will select from an unchanged squad for the local derby with Morecambe.

Stanley remain without defender Michael Liddle, who has a minor hamstring complaint, and young striker Marcus Carver.

Neither player is believed to be too far away from a return, with Carver progressing well following shin surgery and Liddle's problem not considered too serious.

Beattie will have the same group to select from as the one which lost 2-1 at Rochdale over the weekend, with only a stoppage-time winner denying Stanley a point against one of the division's high fliers.

Andy Fleming completes a two-match suspension when Morecambe make the short trip to Accrington.

The midfielder has been awarded 10 yellow cards this season and therefore misses out again after being banned for Saturday's 1-1 draw with Dagenham.

Full-back Shaun Beeley remains another absentee, with his strained hamstring set to keep him on the sidelines for a couple of weeks.

Shrimps boss Jim Bentley reported a couple of knocks to unnamed players following the weekend's draw, with midfielder Stewart Drummond having to be withdrawn through a foot injury in the first period.
